Wave impact loads
Assessing extreme loads on ships and offshore structures and superstructures
Nextflow Software solvers can compute wave loads on structures and superstructures, based on a complete methodology.
The diffraction/radiation solver identifies critical waves by evaluating many sea states using linear theory (parametric study of headings, wave heights and sea states). A potential High Order Spectral wave solver (HOS) coupled with a CFD solver (such as SPH-flow) is then used to compute critical waves time series identified. This methodology makes the most of all the solvers, in the same unified environment.
